Once the app is open, it's great, but it takes so long to actually load that you can't just have "a quick look" at the weather, and notably missing is a widget so you can view the current temp at a glance without having to open the app. For this reason I kept my other weather app but sadly that one is now discontinuing. PLEASE GIVE US A WIDGET FOR THIS APP!
Great app generally, apart from the absence of a "glanceable" widget. Also found that forecast (as opposed to current) cyclone information isn't available through the weather warnings page, so I am back to the BOM site for that, even though it's something that potentially affected people are likely to want to monitor regularly. Would be great to be able to make a link to the cyclone forecast for a particular area (e.g. Coral Sea) in the main menu, as you can for weather in other locations. Thanks for a great app! ☺
Fairly nice app that could use some serious improvements. UI is way too large and spaced out. It works out for some but a choice of a more compact view would be suburb. As soon as I open the app, I want to be able to see the week's forecast in a glance. Radar is good. Hourly view is great, except again, it needs loads of scrolling, more compact, more better. That "connection problem" slide panel on the bottom is enraging. It needs to be dismissible, or at least should let you retry.
There are 2 things missing from this app - I need to see UV levels to check if my kids need sunscreen before I take them outside. I used to have Weather Australia and it showed the UV colour coded - highlighted green for less than 3 etc., which was perfect. The other thing is please can we have a widget? The app is a bit slow to open so a widget showing at least current temp and UV would be awesome.
Great app. Can still be improved more. Gives you the weather info in a nice and clean interface. Info comes from bom which is fantastic. It would be nice if you can see the 24 hour forecast in one glance, rather than scrolling through. Also, you can't see historical weather data, say if you want to know how hot it got yesterday. I'm using aus weather and I'm getting all that functionality. I might just stick to it for those reasons. But great job here. Oh by the way the back button works for me. I'm using an S7.
Great! Missing two functions, though. This app is excellent! Simple and functional, and easy to see all necessary weather information at a glance. I have two suggestions, which are the only two major things that're missing from the app's functionality: 1: Notifications. The app could send notifications or push notifications to the user when weather warnings (e.g a Severe Storm Warning) become active nearby. 2: Rotation. The ability for the app to rotate to match the orientation of the users' device. Currently it's stuck in portrait.
- Added the ability to exit the app using the back button
- Improved navigation between weather and radar
- Improved start-up time
- Minor bug fixes
